Ian, Eilish & all the staff in Actons went above and beyond to make our day as special as possible. Their packages represent excellent value for money as there are a lot of extras included. Location is fantastic and the outdoor area for the drinks reception is private and personal. We had a guest who decided on the day that he was coming, I said it to Ian and it was absolutely no bother to add in an extra place setting. They took the stress out of planning as they are true professionals and experienced. I could not recommend Actons highly enough!

We couldnt recommend Actons Hotel highly enough, everything exceeded our expectations. Ian made the planning so easy for us, nothing was a problem. All staff we encountered went above and beyond for us. Our guests raved about the food both on the wedding day and our day 2 BBQ. The reception room was beautifully decorated, as were all bedrooms. We had the best day and can't wait to return to Actons Hotel.

Actons is an absolutely wonderful wedding venue. Ian, the wedding coordinator is so fantastic at his job and made the whole wedding planning process so easy. Many of our guests commented on how fabulous Ian is - he was there all day keeping things running smoothly ! That being said, every single member of staff is so friendly, approachable and professional and they clearly do all they can to make your day as special as possible. The food - we are still l dreaming about honestly ! Our guests were very impressed, even those with dietary requirements and the quality of food is fantastic. Not to mention there is so much included in the wedding packages which are so reasonable compared to other venues. The bridal suite is so beautiful and a real treat to stay in but the rooms for guests are also fabulous and so comfortable. We are so delighted we chose Actons for our wedding day and look back on it now so fondly. Thank you to Ian and the wonderful team. We would highly highly recommend having your wedding at Actons.

Location and quality of service is outstanding. Ian the wedding co-ordinator and the whole team were just a joy to work with, he really loves what be does. He made life so easy for us when planning a wedding from the UK, they were so accommodating to our needs. The food and service was out of this world on the day, more is more at Actons. The cherry on top is the bridal suite, the newly renovated rooms are so luxurious. All our guests commented on what a beautiful hotel it was and so many want to come back again for a break. Having priced other venues and been to many weddings in Cork, there really isn't another hotel who can offer the complete package of scenery, food and service at such great value. Actons Hotel is a real gem.

Actons is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting, and the food is to die for. There were so much included in our package that we didn't need any extras at all. Ian, our coordinator and Fidelma, the rooms manager were absolutely amazing - nothing was too much for them and Ian steered the day to perfection. I would highly recommend this hotel for your wedding - over and over...we and the guests alike, were raving about it and the amazing attention to detail and extras that added that special touch! Thanks to all at Actons for hosting an amazing day!

Wow - I know every hotel probably does a great job on weddings, but in my opinion, Actons went above and beyond - they are a super venue, with gorgeous food, lovely rooms etc, and everything just happens so seamlessy - no request seemed to be too much. Ian is so lovely and makes everything work without a bother in the world - there's a reason he wins awards! It's the little additional touches they put to it though - we had a fantastic day and everybody raved about the whole day, so thank you Ian, Fidelma and all at Actons!

Actons Hotel hosted our wedding on May 27th. It was the best decision we have ever made. Ian Eaton is superb at his job and I couldn't recommend him and his team enough. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The food was divine as reported by all our guests. The set up and ambiance on the day was the best I have ever seen. Our guests adored it so much friends are planning on having their own wedding there. Thank you again to Ian and the team, we will be forever grateful that you facilitated the best day of our lives, Regards, Val and Danny Murphy.

We could find no fault with Actons from the very first email to us leaving the hotel. Ian is a fantastic wedding coordinator. He made us feel so at ease, which was really important considering we had to postpone twice because of the pandemic. Everything that was promised to us at the start was delivered on the way. The venue was stunning, the food impeccable, and the staff couldn't do enough for us. All our guest had an amazing time. Thanks so much!

Words cannot explain how perfectly everything went for our wedding at Actons Hotel Kinsale. Ian the wedding coordinator went above and beyond for us. Such a pleasure to deal with and made everything so easy. Ian was always there, whether you emailed or rang. Nothing was ever too much trouble! We had our ceremony in the hotel and it was absolutely stunning. The service and the food were impeccable. All our guests complimented the amount, selection and variety that was on offer. Even the food on day 2 of our wedding party was delicious!
I cannot recommend Actons Hotel enough! If I could do it all again, I wouldn?t change a thing! Fantastic weekend all made possible Ian and the Actons team!!

We had our wedding reception at Actons this year and cannot rate this place more highly!! The team at Actons is absolutely AMAZING!!! By the end of the wedding, I felt like they were my family because each person took a true interest in making our day an absolute dream come true!!!

And God bless Ian for just being a SUPERSTAR at wedding coordination. Nothing was too much trouble and he ALWAYS had a smile on his face. If you work with Ian, I promise you're in good hands. He will ensure you have the perfect day and one you'll never forget.

Our guests love staying at the hotel with views overlooking the harbour and delicious breakfast each morning. The food on the day of the wedding was superb - we served the option of sea bass or beef filet and everyone was raving about it.

Thanks so much again to the Actons team for making our day so special. Especially, Ian, Laura, Eilish, Fidelma, Tomas, and Richie!

I honestly cannot say enough about the amazing work done by all at Actons. They went above and beyond for us. We had our civil ceremony there which they decorated beautifully. They put on a gorgeous drinks reception. Everyone loved the canapes and the 'pimp your prosecco'. We had a buffet style meal with pig on a spit which went down an absolute treat. They had not done a set up like this before for a wedding and were up for the challenge. They did an incredible job. Special thanks to Ian and Tomas.

We held our wedding in Acton?s Hotel kinsale at the beginning of September this year and from start to finish it was unbelievable. When we first met Ian to discuss the possibility of having our reception in acton?s he came across really friendly, helpful and gave us some real advice without pushing the hotel on us.
When we agreed that it would be our venue, they were nothing but a calming influence as we prepared for our big day. As we live in London the preparations were that bit harder but Ian and his team made very it easy for us. We visited the hotel several times to show the venue to family, taste the Wedding meal taster menu and were greeted the upmost professionalism every time form various staff members.
With regards the wedding day itself, it was laid out just as we wanted. When we arrived we were greeted by the hotel Manager Tomas with Champagne and red carpet. We were shown the function room by Ian and everything was exactly as we wanted. They guided us through the day with regards speeches and didn?t rush us at all. All 200 guests were very impressed with all courses of the meal and the plenty of wine being poured also. After the meal they moved everything seamlessly and on we moved to the band and DJ and then a few more drinks in the residents bar. Throughout the whole day all staff from start to finish were excellent especially one girl with blond hair in particular who?s name I embarrassingly cannot remember but she was absolutely fantastic too us the whole weekend .
On top of all that, we had an issue with a venue that we had pre-booked for the 2nd day. At very short notice Acton?s accommodated us and around 100 of our guests us where we were given the reception room we used for the wedding, they provided lovely finger food, music and got on extra bar staff for us. They were absolutely amazing and we cannot thank them enough as they saved day to be honest. The breakfast was also top drawer and once again got rave reviews from guests.
The bedrooms were again of an excellent standard, especially the Bridal suite. We would recommend Acton?s Hotel as an excellent venue for a wedding with professional and friendly staff, food of a very high standard and it?s in the heart of Kinsale. All the guests went away with a really strong impression of Acton?s as well and I?m sure there will be further bookings on the back of it.
We would give it easily 10/10 and cannot thank them enough for making our wedding day so special.

To Ian and all the wonderful staff in Actons, I cannot thank you enough for our amazing wedding day.

Kinsale was top of my list for wedding venues and out of all the venues we viewed, Actons had something about it that we both loved.

Ian is a true professional and always took the time to respond to a phone call or an email and always put my mind at ease. He is very calm and as soon as you sit down to talk to him you know that your wedding day is in the right hands.

The food was simply amazing from start to finish. It is something that our guests are still commenting on. There was plenty of it and the same goes for the wine. There were a number of specific dietary requirements at our wedding. Ian took all the details and reassured us that there was no issue here and they would happily provide suitable meals. Thank you so much for being so accommodating and it really took the pressure from us knowing that everyone was catered for and everyone there could enjoy a meal.

The drinks reception room and bar are alongside each other and I really like this as it keeps your guests together and they don't have to go off searching for the bar elsewhere.

The reception room was so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. The cherry blossom trees and the candelabras really stood out. I was just so happy with how it looked.

The following day myself and my husband stayed to have dinner. The staff could not have been more attentive. We felt very special and well looked after and we really appreciated that. It kept us in 'bride and groom' mode for another day which was a real treat.

I wish I could do it all again. Thank you so much to Ian and all the staff of Actons. We really had the best day.

Ian, Thomas and the rest of the team were a pleasure to deal with. The day itself was beautiful. Our drinks reception was in the garden. It was so beautiful. Everyone loved the food. I couldnt fault them if I tried. So professional. 5 star service from them in every area and amazing memories for us.

We would truly recommend Actons Hotel Kinsale as a venue for a wedding reception. Kinsale itself is beautiful and we had a lot of first time Ireland visitors at the wedding whom were amazed by the town?s beauty and charm.
Actons Hotel Kinsale were fantastic from start to finish ? they made planning the wedding we wanted so easy, which is saying something as we had to plan the entire wedding from New Zealand. They even helped us find a ceremony venue and a humanist to conduct the ceremony, which we felt went above and beyond what they had to do.
Actons Hotel Kinsale really took on board our style and brought it to life. We wanted different centrepieces that represented our personalities and they were happy to take all the decorations we had (and there were many) and make it look fantastic on the day.
There are also some lovely extras that you get with Actons Hotel Kinsale, for example, we had an ice-cream cart and a candy cart (you supply the sweets) at the cocktail receptions that kept the little and big children happy. The table seating chart for the meal that Actons do is really cute ? we had people comment that it must have took us ages to do but in reality we didn?t do a thing. The wedding menus that Actons provide were lovely and bespoke with the details of our wedding on it ? a nice surprise.

We loved the location, the friendliness and professionalism of the Hotel and staff. Our friends many of whom live outside Ireland thought the hotel was amazing and found the rooms facing the water just great. Our bridal suite was beautiful, would love to have had more time there:-)

Actons is an amazing hotel with friendly,professional and helpful staff. Our guests all commented on how helpful every staff member was. The wedding coordinator Sarah and manager Thomas could not do enough to help us from the moment we met them 18 months before our wedding until we left the hotel 2 days after. They are extremely flexible with their packages. Sarah was always so cheerful and helpful, we always felt she went above and beyond her job for us and was genuinely happy for us rather than us being just another bride and groom. Actons is a high quality hotel at reasonable prices. We cannot recommend Actons highly enough.

Our wedding celebration in Actons last September was simply amazing.

Kinsale has always been a special place for us and we couldn't have asked for more on our wedding day.
Tomas, Sarah and the staff are consummate professionals and every last detail of our big day was made a reality by their teamwork, dedication and patience.

Many of our guests travelled long distances to come to our wedding and several travelled with young children. Sarah and the accomodation team handled all of the bookings and the many special requests for babysitters and last minute additions with great professionalism.

We didn't need to know the details because Actons took care of everything, which meant we could focus on our day. The wedding banquet was stellar. Our guests, several of whom work in the hotel industry, all commented on the high quality of the food and even though our wedding photographs took a little longer than expected, Actons accommodated the delay in such a seamless way that we had no idea we were even behind time.

Furthermore, the hotel was beautiful on the day and the staff helped us with the reception table arrangements rendering the reception room everything we had hoped for. When we realised that we had forgotten to collect the top table flower arrangements from the church, Thomas yet again came to the rescue and made sure they were brought to the hotel in time for the reception. From the initial red carpet entrance, to the drinks reception, to the main reception, everything was flawless. We would highly recommend Actons as a wedding venue and would gladly do it all over again with Thomas and the team.

Donna & Mark, What a wonderful, whimsical Midsummer Nights Dream inspired wedding you had.
The decor, flowers and everything was fantastic. We were more than obliged to have had the opportunity to be a part of your wonderful wedding day and thank you profusely for your really kind words.
Tomas really is an all round fantastic man to deal with and will go above and beyond for any of our guests in the hotel.
I hope you manage to make it back down this way shortly so that we can catch up and see how the first year of married life has treated you!
All the best, Sarah & The Actons Team

My advice is to tell the person you are dealing with exactly what you want. Most weddings are sold as packages but Actons were very willing to be flexible and discuss the things that were important to us.

I couldn't recommend Actons highly enough. The staff were very helpful in the run up to the wedding and guided us professionally through our day... Our guests loved the food, and those who stayed we're delighted with their rooms. These guys know what they're doing and they do it as well as they can

After looking at the many venues available in Cork, the Actons Hotel was a winner all round. The size of the room ideal (220 guests) and the layout simplistic with no obstructions or dodgy flooring unlike quiet a few of the venues viewed. My instant attraction to the Actons, outside of its wonderful location in Kinsale town was the overall ambience, it has recently been beautifully renovated to a high standard and the staff are doing their utmost to get this hotel to the top!!
"The Bathroom check"- passed with flying colours, spotlessly clean and always have flowers on display!
The food was great although admittedly we did not manage to eat a whole lot on the day but no complaints from any guests and by all accounts the service was without fault, any requests were seen to without delay.

The bar was adequately staffed, stocked and prices reasonable:-) Well able to cater for the sing song!

All in All, the setting, food, staff and bridal suite were all amazing. Mary was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They cater for your needs and that of your guests at a competitive rate.

Our wedding in the Actons Hotel was absolutely perfect:-)

Our wedding Planner Mary & Tomas and Staff exceeded all expectations right from when we made the telephone enquiry for booking right up to Check Out the day after our wedding. Knowing that i could reach Mary anytime either on phone or email was a great help.

Actons Hotel on the day of our wedding was only STUNNING. Our Guests are still talking about it. The warm welcome upon arrival and the sense of relaxtion even tho the staff couldn't do enough for us and our guests, there was no feeling of stress and the day went amazingly. The Meal was amazing that so too was the evening buffet.

If i could have my wedding day over again, we would no doubt book Actons Hotel. The Hotel and Staff were truly amazing and really made our day totally special.

Actons is a beautiful hotel, we were looking for somewhere really special to wow our wedding guests to begin with. What we didn't think about was how all the little detail, personal requests from individual guests and all the little touches for the wedding.... we didn't think about how important it was to have a team of calm reliable, efficient people who would ensure that nothing was an issue. My main worry as a bride was that I would miss something that was important but Mary, the hotel Conference & Banqueting Manager guided me through everything. (I had a list of 43 questions at our first meeting) Everything was taken care of without any stress. (Particularly important when planning a wedding) Attention to detail was impeccable. We met with the chef prior to the wedding to discuss and taste menus and received fantastic feedback from our guests about how the waiters and waitresses and bar staff were amazing with the kids and really friendly and attentive in general. Overall, to add to a perfect setting in a beautiful hotel the made the wedding the special day that it was. We have sadly lost a parent since and it's just so great to look back at the pictures of the very happy time in the beautiful setting. Professionalism, courtesy and friendliness is top of the agenda here. Most of the wedding guests stayed for a long weekend and did not want to leave. Highly recommended
